[sticky post] YuGiOh Essay & Fanfic Directory!

Since I have the tendency to clutter this blog with personal posts, I thought a directory would make it easier to find things for those of you who've either stumbled onto this blog by mistake or came here through my fanfiction account. This is (more or less) every yugioh-related post I've made--that's of substantial length, anyway--plus links to all my published fanfiction.

Keep in mind that these posts span several years and vary in quality. Some of the fanfiction may be bad, some of the essays may be inaccurate. I certainly know I've changed my stance on some of the things I've said in my character essays, but as they provide food for thought, I think they are still somewhat valuable.

Enjoy!

ARC Contest Entry

I heard about MWT's ARC contest a few weeks ago and promptly panicked because I don't use social media at all and didn't have anywhere to post something. And then I remembered I still had a defunct LJ account, so here we go!

June Media Recap

This post is so belated I can barely remember anything I did. Also I did not do a lot besides read. Whoops. Also I'm too lazy for pictures this time so whatever.

June Recap

You would have no way of knowing this, because I have been almost entirely absent from the internet for the last month, but June may have been my most productive month yet.

May Media Recs

Now that the weather’s getting warmer and there’s more stuff to do, I have a feeling my media intake will go down, although perhaps my book levels will jump back up, since that’s my favorite sunbathing activity.

As for this last month, I read three books--this year's low, watched two movies, and jumped through three and a half TV shows--it's pretty clear where my priorities are, haha.
